Sometimes, toddlers just can’t deal with life. Whether it was a skipped nap, a long day of running errands, or simply because they don’t understand why they can’t knock over a display at the grocery store, tantrums happen. For some kids, no amount of rationalizing or stern words will work – they just need to vent their anger. In a lot of cases, that ends up being very loud shrieks and rivers of tears in the middle of a department store.
Brandi M. was watching her cousin’s child to give them a little break for the day. She had raised two sons of her own and decided to take Abigail with her on a quick errand.
Little Abigail was having a rough day, and while her auntie was trying to finish her shopping list, Abigail dropped to the floor and threw “an Oscar winning fit,” according to Brandi.
That’s when Mrs. Tasha came to the rescue. The woman seemed to know just what to do. She got on the floor right next to Abigail and connected with the child, calming her down…and after a short while, had her smiling again.
Sometimes, life is just too much, and sometimes, a little bit of kindness from a complete stranger can make all of the difference. With Mrs. Tasha acting as a distraction, auntie Brandi was able to grab the last thing on her list – a pre-birthday outfit – and have a great rest of the day.
